I'm too far from BGR to see flights like these myself, and there's no one up there who takes pictures, but do they fly these planes with full colors and titles, or do they paint them over (i.e. cover up any reference to British Airways) before they leave for the boneyard?
Babcock and Brown own G-GFFA and G-LGTI
Indigo Aviation own G-GFFB
BBAM Aircraft Holdings own G-GFFC and G-GFFG
Charlson Partners own G-GFFD
Itochi Leasing own G-GFFE and G-GFFI
Canterbury Company own G-GFFF
GE American Aircraft Leasing own G-GFFH and G-GFFJ
Aerco Ireland own G-LGTE
Orix Aviation Systems own G-LGTF
TA Air IX own G-LGTG
Alpha Aircraft Management own G-LGTH.
However it is clear that these 15 aircraft and the up to 8 752s to be transferred from BA to BA Open Skies starting with the two that are scheduled to be converted to the new cabin configuration in only a few weeks cannot be replaced by just the five 320s.

The chances are that they will be in Basic (painted out) c/s like this one about to depart LHR for Lasham where it was parted out:

Quoting BestWestern (Reply 16): Will baby take the -300s - to match the rest of their clapped out fleet?
Up to the lessors, I expect. However, given that WW will feel a pinch at MAN and BHX from U2 and FR, and FR at EMA its hard to tell what WW will do next, they might retreat or fight fire with fire. I suppose a lot might also depend on what happens if/when LH take over.
Next flights: MAN-ORK-LHR(EI)-MAN(BD); MAN-LHR(BD)-ORK (EI); DUB-ZRH-LAX (LX) LAX-YYZ (AC) YYZ-YHZ-LHR(AC)-DUB(BD)

BUSE was still in full BA livery when i went past it on the staff shuttle the other day. Parked right next to Concorde. There were high lifters all around it, but no idea what they were doing with her.
